3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours gold with a dense white head. There is a subtle citrus aroma with orange, floral, grass, and malt notes, but not as strong as I would expect in a West Coast IPA. Moderately hoppy with citrus, malt, pine, and resinous flavors. The mouthfeel is smooth with a light to medium body, but a bit under carbonated. Not a bad beer but definitely needs more carbonation and a bigger hop punch.

Backlogged rating: Among the 1st batches for this brewery: Golden hue with a fizzy head. Grassy, herbal, slightly piney and grainy nose. Well balanced with moderate bitterness and slight fruity and peppery hop character. Very smooth and refreshing mouth feel.. Solid offering.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(16oz can) lightly cloudy deep gold-orange, creamy offwhite head that laces nicely. Nose of cream, pine, light candied citrus, biscuit, touch of funk if swirled, candied citrus. Taste is less indicative of the nose, really well balanced, biscuit, tends toward malty, touch of pine, cream, orange pulp, very creamy finish, great malty linger with a touch of citrus zest.

Bottle. Wanted this one to be a little more west coast, hop aroma could be larger.

On tap. Minor head, maybe half a finger. Next to no lacing with a nose thatís almost completely caramel malt. Some citrusy hops that are almost outweighed by the grainy backbone. Lighter body for an IPA with plenty of carbonation. Not my favorite take on the style, but still an immensely drinkable beer.

Orange in color, 2 finger white head. Aroma is a bit yeasty and dank, but overall muted. Flavor is sweet with just a hint of hops. Far from a West Coast IPA>

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a rich clear gold with a fluffy off white head that settles quickly to a thin ring and doesnít lace at all. Nose involves some caramel and honey malt notes, a whiff of pine and grapefruit, some orange, subdued. Pretty sweet, fairly bitter. Medium bodied, somewhat oily, a bit flaccid, fair carb, with a lingering herbal bitter finish. Ultimately, not that eventful for me. I donít find it especially crisp and bright. I also donít think the hop aromas pop much. I like the aroma Iím getting, but I have to search for it. I would like to try this again, but for this experience, Iím not impressed.
